Krannert Faculty, Staff and Students-

Many of you may be aware through news, social media, or direct conversations that last Friday evening, February 4, police received a bystander report of a suspected assault on a woman, which prompted a response from Purdue Police. The resulting physical interaction between the officer and the student was captured on video and has been widely viewed by the campus community.   

Thursday evening, February 10, President Daniels released this statement about the incident. As he mentions in his remarks, all of the details of the incident are being investigated, and a full report will be made available following the conclusion of that process.  

We want Krannert students and employees to feel supported and be supported throughout this process. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the campus have the right to feel safe and secure in their being, belonging, and interactions in and with all aspects of the Purdue community. 

There are immediate/initial steps that we can take with a goal of making sure that our community is heard and fostered. For students, the PSG website provides several resources including:

Students can also reach out to the Office of the Dean of Students and the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging.  Faculty and staff may utilize these resources and may also reach out to your area coordinator or supervisor.

As more information becomes available, we invite the Krannert community to help us constructively cultivate an environment of belonging. Please share any suggestions with Roy Dejoie (; 496-6724) or Darren Henry (; 494-6602), our Dean’s Fellows for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Whether you need help/support or wish to share your thoughts and concerns, please know that we are here to support and advocate for the Krannert community.
